Bunker Buddies

We're all magical wizards! Andie (raised a prepper now TV writer) and Ben (user experience tech design, Hyperloop One, Jaguar Land Rover) use their real life experiences while staying open and vulnerable in hopes that if your life brings you zombies, real or metaphorical, you'll be leveled up for battle and know you're not alone! We are your Bunker Buddies. Let's Grow! Bunker Buddies is a show all about survival that was founded by Travis McElroy and Andie Bolt back in 2014. Now, THERE IS NO TRAVIS HERE! Sadly, we miss him too! After Travis moved back east, Ben Ellis was brought on as the new co-host. Then the world became an actual apocalypse. Last year a twist of fate left Andie & Ben both struggling to survive personal hardships no go bag could fix. They had to dive deep internally and realized all this time the zombies they were obsessed with fighting were on the inside. So if you want external survival, that's the show up till mid 2018. Although the show is still lighthearted and comedic in 2019 we switched our category from comedy to spirituality and left our network. Now, we are using the tools in our internal go bags to fight our way out of an internal game of Dungeons and Dragons with self love. We talk philosophy, consciousness, mental health, Jospeh Campbell, self care, and leveling up against those monsters hiding on our insides. Skills to help you can live your best life and never settle for anything less. Basically everything Sabrina the Teenage Witch is dealing with only this magic is REAL for us!

Hey Buddies! There's something about this that just feels GOOD! We have no idea what it is, and we're probably imagining it! We're so excited this week to be joined by the hilarious and wonderful Paul Sabourin (of Paul & Storm) to discuss SHARK ATTACKS! They are not nearly as wide spread as pop culture would have us believe. In fact, if you follow some handy tips you can significantly decrease the risk! That said, attacks do happen and you'll need to know how to survive! Enjoy and don't forget to share!

Oh hey there Buddies! We were just about to go for a jog, would you care to join? You really should think about some kind of fitness routine before the Apocalypse rolls around! Maybe you'll do Crossfit and sword fighting like Andie! Or maybe you'll run, wrestle and knife fight like Travis! Or maybe, you'll do ice skating, cycling, hiking, and a thousand other things like our amazing guest Ali Spagnola! Listen to this episode and maybe we can help you pick something! You'll also learn why NPR hosts shouldn't do sports commentary! You might even help Travis and Andie settle a debate about impressions! Listen, enjoy and don't forget to tell a friend!
